First the worst, second the best. Part I

Hi readers, Sam here talking about a good but of fun me and Damien are having with each others armies.

The other week Damien challenged me to write the worst list that I could using one of my armies (chaos marines being the obvious choice here) whilst he does the same thing with one of his (orks). Then we both swap armies and see what happens. I thought this was a great idea and the following game developed. Now this is part one of the game analysis and mini batreps with us doing the complete oposite in a few weeks. Writing the best lists with the same armies and swapping again. I hope you enjoy reading this post and if you would like to see more like this then please let us know.

Sam's chaos space marine list
Now I wanted to sink as many points into the army as I could. Therefore every unit has mark of slaanesh and veterans of the long war.

Abbadon the despoiler

Chaos lord
Black mace
Murder sword
Sigil of corruption
Aura of dark glory
Spell familiar
Combat familiar
Terminator armour
Melta bombs
(Hehehe turn three he booned into a spawn :D)

Helbrute with two fists and combi bolters
Helbrute with two fists and combi bolters

Same is repeated 3 times bere 

10 chosen, 4 combi bolters, slaanesh, melta bombs, rhino with every upgrade possible. So
Combi plasma
Destroyer blades

That was 2000 points

Damiens army

Deployment and pre game stuff
As always chaos boons fairly shit
Dae went first
No seize the initiative.

Turn one
Chaos units pop some shots and orks advance
Nothing of note really happens.

Turn two
A frenzied helbrute makes shortwork of a truck

The rest of the orks advance

Left flank looks busy

Turn three
Lascannon pops a truck, havoc launcher begins to mow through men
This was turn three really

Helbrute ready to smash the morkanought

Battlewagons ram the helbrute, combi rockets helped

Chaos lord killed a whole unit them turned into spawn

Morkanought lived, barely

Abbadon walked through the nobs, the marines walked through the boys and the helbrute wrecked the other squad of boys.

End of turn three dae was 8-7 maelstrom points up and I only had gretchen left. At this point I conceeded the game.

Damiens Comment 'Sam should not have given me lascannons...'

Was an absolute blast and I look forward to part two.

Confessions of a Warhammer Wife

Confessions of a Warhammer Wife

Bruce’s obsession with Warhammer was only revealed to me during our second year of dating. We had been together a long time by then – had even lived together for the majority of that time while at University. And still I didn’t know about this one aspect of Bruce’s nerd-dom. When Bruce and I first began dating I was fully aware of – even besotted by - his nerdy credentials. Together we had played hours of Halo 3 and Mario Kart, swapped manga and even visited the cinema for a solo late night screening of Star Trek. Yet this did not prepare me for what would become one of his main loves in life.
It all started back in 2012. We had been living separately back at our parents’ homes after University – me in Yorkshire, he in Worcester. I would often travel down to visit him and on one such occasion I was told of a new friend Bruce had made through work. Damien. They had apparently bonded when Bruce had taken on old model – a Tyranid Warrior I believe – into his …

Death korps of Krieg

Hello everyone, Sam here, it has been a while since I have posted on here and wanted to share what I have been working on. My first loyalist (shudder) army. Also my first guard army. 
Over the past 10 months or so I have been slowly building and painting a Death Korps of Krieg army using the seige of Vraaks book. I have been attempting a unit a week but like we all do my attention and attitude towards painting blows hot and cold.
I was origionally drawn to Krieg due to their post apocalyptic / menacing appearance and thought that they would be perfect for a renegades army. However the more that I read and planned the army, the more interested in the Krieg themselves that I became. This lead me to my first order of death riders and the other more krieg units. This is not to say that i wont experiment with renegades as i have found some wicked looking zombie krieg models that I may incorperate in the future. I expect this army to play in a totally different style to those I currently use …

Led kits and knights

Sam here with a small write up to review a product I have got recently which I think is just plain awesome.
I am starting an imperial Knight army at the moment and wanted to somethig to make them pop a little more (they will be bright yellow so needed something rather extravegant) so I had seen some pictures online of people who had added LED's to their knights and was hooked.
I searched the internet for some sources and found that it did not easily yield any obvious choices. A lot of expensive kits appeared for remote control cars and model train kits but I wanted something with one battery, switch and two led's without the hasstle of soldering myself.
Then I came accross this website
Easy to navigate
Low cost
Range of products
Fantastic customer service! I had emails with instructions arrive upon payment as well as shilling information.
All in all it cost me around £10 for the kit including the battery I had to buy seperate.

Using the kit
The kit was …
